Description 

This route is located 20 feet left of the The Good, The Bad and The Ugly routes and begins on a very dirty arete.

The route follows the arete for 3 bolts, then climbs left and follows a beautiful face for 12 bolts (or so).

This is probably one of the most intense moss and lichen experiences I have had in the Gunnison Valley. The upper face will be spectacular with some cleaning as it contains some really nice edges and fun movement, but for now, the route is enjoyable, but filthy.

Descent: rappel into the gully climber's left to a two bolt anchor (25m), then a second rappel to the ground through the dirty gully.


Protection 

Bolts, chain anchors.

Route is stellar. A great two pitch route (including the last pitch of GBU), with minimal scrambling between belays, that is slightly better than GBU. I am not sure about the lichen, but I had no problem with it. I am also not sure about the PG13 rating. We skipped the first bolt and extended the second to reduce drag.

Real freaky, DIRTY, naughty ... not PG-13, or 2 pitches? Bring a trowel and some agent orange for this gem....
